The Ruhr area has outstanding strengths in key established industrial sectors (e.g. energy, steel) as well as in an innovative start-up ecosystem. Gründerfonds Ruhr bridges the gap between capital supply for innovative business models and demand for start-up financing
Gründerfonds Ruhr is a Venture Capital fund with an investment focus on seed stage companies in the region in sectors matching the industry leaders partnering in the fund (e.g. ThyssenKrupp, Evonik, innogy)
As innovation leader in future energy with strong roots in the Ruhr area, the innogy Innovation Hub is the ideal partner for start-ups in the region – now also leveraging the cooperation with the Gründerfonds Ruhr.
